Sask. driver honors Humboldt victims in the stars

HUMBOLDT, Sask. – Searching for a way to remember the victims of the Humboldt tragedy, Blaine Davies is looking to the stars.

The Estevan-based driver for Hyndman Transport used the International Star Registry to name a star after each one of the 16 people who lost their lives in April when the bus carrying the team was involved in a collision with a truck.

Davies was a Broncos fan and color commentator last season for rival team the Estevan Bruins which plays in the same league as the Humboldt team.

Davies heard about the International Star Registry in a Valentine’s Day-themed radio ad while driving through the U.S.

“I was thinking ‘why does it have to be a sweetheart?’” he said.

Davies first used the idea to register a star for a friend in memory of their brother. When he heard about the crash involving the young hockey players he says he immediately thought about memorializing them in the heavens.

Davies reached out to the registry’s Canadian office and had a star named for each other of the team’s players, coach, assistant coach, statistician, athletic therapist, broadcaster, and bus driver who lost their lives. The 16 stars are all located in the same section of the Little Dipper constellation – visible year-round from Canada.

The families of the victims will be presented with the International Star Registry packages on NHL day Aug. 24.

As a member of the Stanley Cup-winning Washington Capitals, Chandler Stephenson will be bringing the trophy to Humboldt

to honor those lost. The Saskatoon native knew some of the Broncos’ players.

“I just was hoping this would bring some comfort to the families knowing that they would have something to look up to,” Davies said.

The packages for the families will include a card that reads, “Your star is bright throughout the darkness of your night. Your star will shine forever to let you know everything is alright.”

In addition to the registered stars Davies got a tattoo of the Broncos logo with 16 stars on his window-facing shoulder, “so they can ride with me.”
